Vote: Which classic PlayStation games deserve HD upgrades?

Rate which golden oldies deserve a makeover

Sony has got into a habit of publishing HD re-releases of classics from yesteryear, and judging by recent news it seems there's another on the way in the future.

Numerous classic PlayStation games have been washed, scrubbed, brushed and polished to look their very best for the modern gamer - titles such as Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, Jak And Daxter, and Ratchet & Clank.

But what's next? We already know Bluepoint Games, the studio behind the HD God Of War, Ico and Metal Gear Solid collections is once again "bringing a Sony classic to current systems".

With that in mind, we've shortlisted ten classic Sony series we'd love to see added to the Classics HD line. All you have to do is rate each out of ten, with one meaning you don't care if you never see it again and ten meaning you'd seriously consider naming your first-born Kratos if it meant seeing an HD version become reality.

There's a skip button for those you don't want to rate.

Let's get voting.

Ape Escape trilogy

First released in 1999, Ape Escape was the first PlayStation game to exclusively use the new analogue DualShock controller. Its daft sense of humour and hilarious monkey characters led to a PSP port and two PlayStation 2 sequels, but then... not so much.

Sure, there have been a bunch of spin-offs, including a PlayStation Move mini-game compilation, but there hasn't been a proper Ape Escape adventure in eight years. In the absence of any new announcements on the horizon, we'd happily take an HD collection of the first three games instead.
